Recap: Dallas vs. Sacramento

Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - Another trip to Dallas ended in another loss for the Kings.

O.J. Mayo led six Mavericks in double figures with 19 points, as Dallas rolled to a 17th straight home win against Sacramento in a lopsided 119-96 decision at American Airlines Center.

Chris Kaman chipped in 18 points, Darren Collison scored 15 and Dahntay Jones, Derek Fisher and Jae Crowder each added 11 in the club's third straight win.

"We had a great time out there playing together as a unit," Jones said. "I think we're in a good place right now."

The Kings, who have not won in Dallas since Feb. 27, 2003, gave up 32 points off 20 turnovers and allowed the hosts to shoot 55 percent from the field.

Francisco Garcia made seven 3-pointers to join DeMarcus Cousins with a team- high 25 points. Jason Thompson added 11 points and 12 rebounds in the setback.

The Mavs scored eight of the last nine points of the first quarter to open a 36-29 lead, then ripped off the first 12 points in the second to take control.

Two Marcus Thornton free throws stopped the run, but Dallas followed with another 10-0 spurt, stretching the lead to 58-31 when Mayo and Brandan Wright hooked up for an alley-oop dunk.

The Kings netted their first field goal of the period with 3:33 to go, and went into the break trailing by a 65-43 margin.

It got as close as 11 following a Garcia 3-pointer with 5:22 showing in the third, but Elton Brand scored six points on an 8-2 run to build an 85-68 cushion.

The difference was 88-70 entering the fourth and never dipped below 15.

"They started the game with crazy runs and were making every shot. So it was really hard for us to make a comeback tonight," said Garcia following his career-high point total.
